Fired FBI Director James Comey had his feet held to the fire on Fox News Sunday by anchor Chris Wallace, who grilled him on the FBI’s misconduct during the Russia probe. Despite Comey’s admission that the FBI mislead the FISA court in their applications to spy on a Trump campaign staffer, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) refused to cover Comey’s comments on their flagship morning and evening news programs between Sunday and Monday evenings.

Instead of reporting on Comey’s comment’s regarding the FBI’s misconduct, the networks tried to pump up the excitement for the partisan impeachment vote in the House on Wednesday. They also went gaga for Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You, which finally topped the charts after 25 years. A showcase of their priorities.

While their silence was defining, Fox News Channel’s Special Report provided an update on Monday evening. “Former FBI director James Comey concedes he was overconfident when he backed the agency's use of surveillance of an advisor to then-candidate Trump’s 2016 campaign and then when he gave the process has full-throated defense afterwards,” announced anchor Bret Baier before handing it off to correspondent Kristin Fisher.
